  1. Yes thanks I think I might go for the early manual tensioner or get an overhaul kit for the automatic tensioner .I'm a recently retired mechanic so I'm fairly sure The tension is OK. Thanks Clive.
  2. Hi all. My Elite 504 on over run my cam belt chatters against the belt guard on the long side, exhaust cam to crank pulley. The belt is not old but the tensioner is so if the tensioner is week will that cause it ? Is the early belt tensioner better than the later one? Thanks for any advice Clive
  3. Hi Dion. As far as I know this not normal is there any sign of it ever been hit at the rear. I have owned three Elites over the years and have never seen it. All the best Clive
  4. Hi Chris. Thanks for your help. i have got it sorted now. Got a five year old to sort it lol. And yes Monaco white is the best colour. All the best Clive
  5. Hi Chris thanks for the reply. I purchased a proper gaming pc so it should be good enough. I live in a caravan on the land of a friend so i have very limited wifi. Thats the only reason for not downloading the sim. i will go for a screen shot. Im not the sharpest tool in the toolbox but i will try. Thanks Clive
  6. Hi all. Is there anyone else on here that has Microsoft flight sim 2020? I have the ten disc standard edition. Disc one loads fine but when i try to load disc two i get a message asking for a destination . I would have thought as disc one loaded ok it should have gone to that destination . I have tried several ways of getting to load . Have you ever tried to contact Microsoft. DONT BOTHER Thanks to anyone that can help.
  7. Might be worth just checking your cam timing as it's poss that the belt can jump a tooth or two when the engine backfires. only on the square tooth belt though. It did happen to mine so now have the later round tooth belt and wheels.
  8. Not sure i can make it now. First one i will have missed for ages.
  9. I should be there as things stand at the moment.
  10. Sorry you are to you are not old enough.
  11. What about pro flex from wicks Cheap and the direction i'm looking at.
  12. Hi Ant . Soft focus makes all things look good. 70s film trick for fading divas.
  13. Good night. One Eclat, one Elite, one Elise. Two new members.
  14. Fast estate like the 70s M50 Elite. 😜
  15. I hope to be there in the Elite. I have recovery in place just in case😀
  16. Hi Ant. I'm on holiday for a week or so i can come over and have a look as i have done my diff and brakes. I will give you call when i get back.
  17. I am already going to an event at Hockwold in the Elite with a friend in his Eclat. Nice chill out event. I have been to Elveden in the past. They do pack the cars in so don't think you will be able to open your door very far.
  18. The delivery guy who went base over apex would not agree. He was warned and not hurt. Good job he could not see me laughing.😂
  19. You might get a copy of the workshop manual off the forums as a full member i think. welcome to the forum.
  20. I have sets of decking and will never have it again. It's a pain to look after and in the winter it turns into a skating rink.
  21. I would love to see a pic if possible as i have to respray my Elite as at the moment i have filled the hole in. I have been given a good second hand unit thanks to oilmagnet. Another option would be nice.
  22. Yes i'm going through the historic process at the moment for my 1978 Elite, and they do need an MOT. Just waiting for DVLA to get back to me.
  23. I should be there. For some reason i have got the 16th on the calendar!! Glad i read your post.
  24. Hi all my Elan failed its MOT on emissions. Does anyone know if there is a replacement for the mixture potensiometer as lotus no longer list it.
